Sometime last week, there was a rumor that suggested that Apple could be releasing the next version of the iOS – version 4.3 – as early as mid-December. The sources pointed out that the release could bring in-app subscriptions and several bug fixes to the iPhone platform.
Now there is word that this rumor may not be so true after all. Reports now indicate that Apple may have delayed the release of iOS 4.3 until early 2011. Now “delayed” may not be the best word here since it is not clear if the release actually got postponed or whether this rumor was false in the first place.
This is not all. Apparently, we will also not be seeing the release of iPad Magazine anytime soon. It was earlier speculated that since the News Corp iPad magazine was rumored to launch this year, the iOS release too could follow shortly since the magazine will require a software upgrade. Now, with the iOS 4.3 release date being pushed to next year, the News Corp magazine too may not release anytime this year.
